Esteva 2008 has a bright red ruby hue. Its bouquet is dominated by lively red fruit (strawberry and cherry), as well
as by balmy notes (cedar and tobacco) and hints of chocolate candy and a floral component of rock-rose. Its
complexity arises both from the careful selection of blends from Douro recommended vine varieties and from its
evolution in the bottle. It is well-balanced, a result of the softness of Tinta Barroca, the full-body and lingering of
Touriga Franca and the elegance and tannins of Tinta Roriz.
Esteva is made from traditional Douro red grape varieties - Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca - essentially
from the Sogrape estates in the region, as well as from higher-altitude areas nearby, thus ensuring the ideal and
necessary balance between maturation and natural acidity.
